I love reading History. I find it more fascinating than most fiction. Although a registered Independent voter, my political and social views lean to a conservative outlook. Both major political parties are, in my opinion, totally bankrupt in ideals and intent. Both pull too far in their respective direction, and all have sold themselves to the highest bidders. A New England Yankee, I have great admiration for the founders of our nation. The early ones, Washington, Adams Jefferson and others put their lives on the line. Add Madison, Franklin and more. We are most fortunate that our Revolution/Rebellion was organized and led by educated, enlightened men (not to forget Abigail and some other uncelebrated women) who thought far into the future, and it took other men like Jackson, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and FDR to maintain the hopes & dreams of millions. France's Revolution started well, but was taken over by lesser men, and fell into the Reign of Terror, and the Guillotine. Russia suffered Lenin & Trotsky. We were luckier! I cannot get through the day without reading the Comics. Regular comics first, then the Political 'toons. Unemployed for 35 months, I finally landed a good position with a good company! However, now I have less time to comment, (a relief to some) and less time to read other comments. Just typing out my gripes & diatribes gives me a feeling of being a little less helpless, and I feel better having said it. Sometimes I goof. I do like reading other comments: occasionally I learn something.

    Way to go, Mike. Panel five is the first time I’ve seen Kim as “older”.

    I’m a bit off the topic here, but Planned Parenthood is necessary for a larger reason. This planet IS getting over-populated with humans. We’re at, what, approaching EIGHT BILLION now? And, after what many of us have done to the planet’s eco-system, atmosphere and waters, how will man cope in the next century?

    A most apt, updated post! I’ve been mad for a long time now, and I DO vote, and WILL vote for Bernie Sanders, if he gets the nomination. If not, I’ll probably just stick my head out the window and HOWL!

    I will probably be long gone, when History finally tells all about WHY Trump came out, as he is doing. I still think something very fishy is going on behind all this grandstanding.Political campaigning, Hollywood and Madison Avenue all working together, with Wall Street funding the greatest show on earth!

    I distinctly remember Ronald Reagan on television one night, live, in which he announced tax cuts for the wealthy. He went on to TAKE AWAY many tax deductions and exemptions, used mostly by the middle class, such as interest on credit card debt, home mortgages, etc. At the end, he shuffled his papers, and looking right into the camera, announced “There’s no more free rides!” That was probably the THIRD biggest lie we ever heard from this man, after the “trickle-down” effect, and that “Government IS the problem!”It is truly amazing, the damage one person can inflict upon the world.

    OK, Drew; I and many other patriot fans accept that the Broncos beat Brady & team. But are you STILL belly-aching about Pete Carroll? It was the OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR who wanted to execute the slant pass. Carroll approved it. And while everybody watching expected the Seahawk’s what’s-his-name to get the ball and bludgeon over the line, the slant pass was perfectly thrown, going straight into the hands of the intended receiver, until Malcolm Butler’s hands reached up and snatched the ball!That last minute of play in S-B 49, with that unbelievable catch at the sideline, right up to Butler’s interception, was football at it’s FINEST! No one screwed up. That is how the game is played. Are you going to condemn Pete Carroll forever?(The above brought to you by someone who still wants to beat up Bucky Dent, and still broods about “Too many men on the ice”! But, I’ve forgiven Bill Buckner.)
